"boys will cry"
even though for a long time I really didn’t want to. it burned to be vulnerable on a Tuesday morning and felt weird to be anything but okay. I told myself to be the head of the household. standing firmly as the typical black male. though…. I feel everything.
as a fine artist, I visualize and cultivate stories of wonder and chaos through layered color, breathy line-work and distinctive illustrations. inspired by all the words I couldn’t say, anything that made me feel less that what I thought I was worth. a black man looking for his moment to cry, cracking the generational wall of trauma. the key I wanted to make me whole. I use my abstracts to dramatize everyday feelings as the stories dance over the line of reality. the fine freedom of emotion.
